In Memory of
Barbara Antoinette Andrew
-

Barbara Antoinette Andrew “HP” of Rosenberg Texas passed away on January 12, 2021 at the age of 81 after a courageous fight against a blood disorder illness. Her loving son Perry and daughter in law Mary Ann were by her side. She was born on February 27, 1939 in Berwyn, Illinois to John Zarecki and Helen [Wiencek] Zarecki. 


She attended Argo High School in Argo Illinois. She met and married Stephen Andrew and they had four children together. She later began working in retail and was an office manager for most of her career. 


After retiring she moved to the great state of Texas where two of her children had relocated. She made “couponing” a hobby, which was shopping for deals using coupons and the stores weekly ads and special promotions. She probably never paid full retail price for anything the rest of her life. In fact sometimes the store would owe her money for “purchasing” their merchandise. Thanks Ma for all the free stuff!!!


Barbara is survived by her four children, Lorraine Van Reese & husband Allen, Perry C Andrew & wife Mary Ann, Linda Elkins and LaVerne Valdez & husband Dan. Also survived by her Brother Jerry & wife Judy and many Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her parents, her spouse and her Brother Thomas.


Services will be held on Thursday, January 21, 2021 in the Chapel of Beresford Funeral Service. Visitation will be from noon to 2 PM. Burial will follow at Morton Cemetery, 401 N 2nd St, Richmond, TX.


The family would like to especially thank Dr. Majid Basit and all the caregivers at Memorial Herman Hospital, Sugar Land TX and Dr. “Meg” Bhandari and all the caregivers at Texas Oncology, Sugar Land TX. We would also like to thank all our friends who have been so supportive and helpful.

I am so glad that I got to speak to your mom a couple years ago. I got to share with her that when we were teenagers she welcomed all of us as if we were her own kids. That is something that I will never forget. Your mom will be very much missed. Rest in peace, your work here on earth is done. It is now time for you to be at peace!!!!!

BHb9X Perry, As I know you promised our father (whom passed with a heavy heart at 44) to take care of our mother, his wife. As an independent woman, whom worked her career to be an office manager at the Chicago based 'Zayre,' who would think Barb's needed looking after. But our father projected a long life & she managed to live a full life, of her own expression. As a young devoted mother, first. & Even once her career was forced to early retirement, Barb's managed to finish her dream & travel. She would spend the last two decades in Texas with her son, due to her time served in the cold climate in the Upper Peninsula, where 3 out of 4 of her children were born, I would be the only one born in the new Air Force based hospital. The stories of what life was like in that 30+ degree below weather. Despite of what separated the family to disperse into different directions, there will always be the strong foundations of what was 'once upon a time.' I am Truly grateful for Perry & Maryann of there devotion to our mother, Stephen's wife. Sincerely LaVerne (the baby in the family)
